Grange Farm comprises a fine Georgian grade II listed Farmhouse with an adjoining 2 bedroom cottage (which could be incorporated to make a larger house) standing within one acre of private gardens and Keepers Cottage, a traditional 3 bedroom farmhouse cottage, standing within half an acre grounds. The properties are approached along a shared private driveway, whilst enjoying a secluded setting within a sought after village, situated within four miles of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds. Both properties provide tremendous scope and potential to improve (subject to the relevant planning permissions being approved by St Edmundsbury Borough council) and further land, a brick flint barn (offering potential for conversion) and a range of agricultural sheds are also available subject to negotiation.

Built in 1777 for the Thomas Gage family and now in need of an element of updating, Grange Farm provides fine proportions, complemented by original features including sash windows, exposed beams, quarry tiled and wooden flooring, panelled doors and an impressive arched stone doorway originally from the magnificent Hengrave Hall.

Outside
The properties enjoy a splendid approach along a sweeping gravel driveway. To the front of Grange Farm House are walled gardens mostly laid to lawn. To the side of the house is a large area of mature garden stocked with an abundance of trees, shrubs and flowering plants. To the rear of this is a further area of meadow and to the side of the house is a courtyard area with range of outbuildings.

Planning permission is being sought to create a new entrance at the front of Grange Farm House. The total plot size for Grange Farm House is approximately one acre. Keepers Cottage adjoins the rear of Grange Farm House (although completely private) and is complemented by private gardens extending to approximately half an acre. There is a range of outbuildings suitable for conversion adjoining Keepers Cottage and a detached flint barn is available by separate negotiation with potential to convert into residential use (subject to planning permission being granted by St Edmundsbury Borough Council).


Situation
Grange Farm occupies a delightful setting, set back from the road down a long shared private driveway whilst situated in the heart of the village. Hengrave is a historic rural village in Suffolk best known for its magnificent Hengrave Hall, and is located approximately four miles from the sought after market town of Bury St Edmunds which provides all local amenities, public houses, the arc shopping centre, well-known abbey ruins and cathedral and well regarded schools for all ages.


Directions
From the direction of Bury St Edmunds, proceed along the A1101 towards Mildenhall. At Fornham All Saints, proceed straight across the double roundabout and follow the road into Hengrave. The entrance to Grange Farm will be found further on the right.
